The first night, and already we have one of the buzzier shows of this year’s Music Marathon. Sweden’s NONONO, led by Stina Wäppling, gave off electro-dayglo vibes as expected from the hype that proceeded them. They don’t even have their debut full-length out just yet, yet are already being dubbed, uh, “buzzy.” Anyway, their set was dance-tastic as expected. Only slightly more emotional on the electro-pop grid was Panama Wedding. And Mystery Skulls started the whole party with maybe the most soulful set of the night, vocal and sweeping melody-wise at least. As the evening progressed and the drinks flowed, the musical content got sillier, as well it should.
